A good technique is to go in a console to the directory in which the command is and type the command for execution.
Mostly interesting info is the result.
Preferably, post that here?

I attempted to go to the file and got the following

Stopping VirtualBox kernel module ...done.
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module ...failed!
(Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
# /var/log/vbox-install.log
bash: /var/log/vbox-install.log: Permission denied

I assume that there is something that automatically happens in lupu5.2 that is not happening in Fluppy. I can get to through setup and click on "start" and then get the messages reported here. With Lupu I have to go through the internet connection process whenever awakening from "suspend". Each OS is very close to being "just right" on this laptop.

@ BHINTZ

I'm sure you need the kernel source form page 1 to recompile the kernel drivers. Wink

When I've built my own virtual box in Lucid I also used the devx.sfs but not sure you really need it.

There might be a simpler way, but this works for me.

Download to directory /usr/src
http://puppeee.com/files/sources/kernel-source-2.6.34.7-patched.tar.bz2
Type
# cd /usr/src
# tar xvf http://puppeee.com/files/sources/kernel-source-2.6.34.7-patched.tar.bz2
# cd kernel-source-2.6.34.7-patched
# make prepare
# make oldconfig
# make (your computer will be busy for a long time)
# make modules_install
# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
You can check your success by typing
# lsmod | grep vbox
yielding something like
vboxnetadp 4974 0
vboxnetflt 12162 0
vboxdrv 129133 2 vboxnetadp,vboxnetflt Very Happy

I am trying to follow these directions, but when I type "# make prepare" I get "bash: make: command not found"

I am pretty certain that there is a space between the words.

I am using the LXT terminal, is that the problem.

Sounds like you don't have the devx loaded

I have downloaded and rebooted with devx selected, but still get message about "make" being unknown command

I had great hopes and have plugged in my laptop as I have no idea what "a long time" means in this process once I finally get it happening.

I have found the log which reports that the initial problem is that I do not have a functional "make" command.

Is that a fluppy issue? or how do I fix that?

@ BHINTZ

To run the 'make' command you definitively need the compiler environment flp_devx_010.sfs from here.

Rolf

Edit: sorry, I missed the last posts. Have you loaded the dev.sfs file with the Boot Manager?
Are you using the virtualbox4.sfs from lupu 5.2?

I have installed 4.0sfs and get the following message when I attempt to run the setup


/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
bash: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: No such file or directory

The file I was attempting to compile was downloaded following ecube's recommendation above.

The message from 4.0 is different from the message from 3.28 (fluppy edition). That one indicated that I do not have a "make" command.

I wrestling with WINE a shell for WINE called "Play on Linux" was recommended http://www.playonlinux.com/en/

Has this been tested in Fluppy?

They list what it works on here

http://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html

Puppy is not mentioned Smile Can one guess from that list which puppy version that has teh most likely chance to work?

@ BHINTZ

OK, found two minor differences in the post from ecube which work for me.
I assume you use a frugal install. Your save file must have more than 512MB (I used 756MB).

But first your devx.sfs must be loaded proper! If you type the command make and you get
Code:
make:  *** No targets specified...
then it's OK.
If not, menu->System->Control Panel->Software->Boot Manager configure SFS files and add the devx.sfs (the file must be in mnt/home).

The same with the virtualbox4.sfs file.

Extract kernel-source-2.6.34.7-patched.tar.bz2 to /usr/src. If you copy the file to /usr/src and extract it, you probably need more than 756MB save file. I extracted from a folder under /mnt/home.

Go to the new folder /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.34.7-patched and open a terminal or if you already have one opend, use the cd command.

Then use the make commands provided by ecube.

At last
Code:
/etc/init.d/rc.vboxdrv setup


Now enter virtualbox and the program should run.
If everything works fine you can delete the kernel sources.

HTH

I think this is the only way. It's probably not neccesary to install the compiled modules. My intention is to update Fluppy to 2.6.35.7, if I can solve the sound issue (since 2.6.37 is even worse according to Barry). Hopefully for the next release. Then I will make a pet of the virtualbox modules. Maybe I'll just add them to Fluppy and blacklist them.
